A new year, a better year?

Everyone likes to make New Year's resolutions. Usually it isn't about selfishness but about being a better person. In science, of course, it may be about getting more grants or something like that because we can't change the world that it's our job to understand. At least we can't change the 'laws of Nature'.

Still, Nature somehow gave us the ability to have the very concept of being better, or even of changing the world for the better. However that happened, we can hope to use our sense of responsibility to some good ends.

And we hope to keep entertaining and trying to stimulate those who stumble across this blog--and receiving thought-provoking comments back....
